    1373 was in a grade crossing collision at Fifth Ave. on the Monrovia-Glendora Line back in 1939. The car had minor body damage, but the semi-trailer it hit was scrap metal. The driver was reportedly uninjured, but more than likely was unemployed shortly thereafter. My mother got photos of the aftermath which I post on Trainorders.com and Facebook every now and then. Years later I would see 1373 on Santa Anita Specials, usually with another 1370-class car and a Long Beach Twelve trailer in the middle.
